Hi Third Trimester! I hear you can be a big pain … So, lets make a deal okay? I promise to take it easy if you promise to be not so uncomfortable. Deal? Yeah probably not, but it was worth a try right?!
Since the last time I blogged about Little Lady things have been pretty crazy/busy. Ben and I toured 2 more daycares. First we toured Kyria here in Oshkosh, and we really liked it. The facility is clean and the instructors/staff all seem to be fantastic. Then we toured KinderCare in Neenah. This center is quite a bit more expensive than everywhere else we toured, and I’m not really sure I liked their communication system. All of the other places we went to had notebooks and they seem to go into more detail than what KinderCare does. There are still a few more places to call and tour but we keep coming back to Arts for Kids. We will find something and it will be the right one for us. I’ll keep you posted.
Also, this past weekend we moved into our new house. With that came the beginning of getting Little Lady’s room all ready! Here is Ben and my mom putting on the second coat of off white paint on the ceiling and trim replacing the really dark grey that the previous owners had. And then heres Ben and I getting ready to paint the walls. (Mask for safety!!!) So this is all you are going to see of the nursery until it is finished!
We had our monthly check up yesterday. It was also the big glucose test. We just have to wait and see when the results come in. With the amount of sugar I’ve been craving and eating I wouldn’t be surprised if I had Gestational Diabetes… Otherwise my blood pressure is great, Little Lady’s measuring right on track and her heart rate is 145. Life is great and she is great!
Today we had an appointment with the genetic baby doctor, which means that we got to see Little Lady today again. She is perfect and measuring right on track for where she is supposed to be! We thought this would be our last appointment, but he wants to see us again in 6 weeks. Here is a picture of our Little Lady!!!!
Time for an update:

**Total weight gain/loss: ** +24
**How big is baby: **Baby is measuring in at 13.6 – 14.8 inches. That’s about the size of an Eggplant. Weighing in at 2 lbs 9 oz. according to the dr.
**Maternity clothes? **Wearing them all the time.
**Sleep: **Amazing since I have been sleeping in my own bed!!! I wake up once or twice to use the bathroom, though.
Best moment this week: Seeing Little Lady today in 3D!!!!!
Movement: My child is a raver. She is constantly moving.
Food cravings: Apples … again!
Gender: Little Lady
Belly Button in or out? Still in. Give it time. George (my freckle in my belly button) will get to see the light of day soon!
What I miss: My feet. They are swollen..
**What I am looking forward to: **Finishing the room and getting everything ready!!!
Milestones: She’s starting to develop more fat, so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.
Her lungs are mature enough that she’d probably survive if she was born now.
